Why don’t we just run through all of the emotions blends! I LOVE motivate. I have the roller and I mix it with Jasmine Absolute which is one of my top 5 favorite oils. I have been obsessed with Jasmine since college. I love to drink Jasmine Tea, Smell like jasmine, and I have even attempted growing it. If you know me at all you know I have the super power to kill ANY plant no matter how hard I try to keep them alive.
I use this blend in the form of a roller, but be cautious as motivate contains citrus oils that may cause skin sensitivity in the sun.
This blend mixed with elevation is a great blend for the diffuser to keep things uplifted and stimulating! This article shows that peppermint significantly increases walking speed and distance in mice suggesting increased behavioral activity when diffused. Also as a fun side note this article shows Peppermint oil targets headache pathophysiology in multiple ways and now is LICENSED for treatment at a 10% dilution for people with tension headaches. Motivate contains peppermint and the extra dash just sends it over the edge for a great way to decrease tension and increase activity!
